Eminem wants to make his relationship with Nicki Minaj official.
Last week, Nicki ignited the ‘Gram when she jokingly told a fan that she was dating the rapper, who she name checks on YG’s “Big Bank.” “Told’em I met Slim Shady / Bagged an Em / Once he go black, he’ll be back again,” she raps on the DJ Mustard-produced track.
Eminem joined the flirty exchange, responding to Nicki in an Instagram comment. “girl you know it’s true,” he said when asked if the two were a couple.
Nicki played into the romance rumors with her response. “babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding,” she told Slim Shady. “Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
But it’s not over. Em reignited the conversation at Boston Calling on Sunday (May 27). During his closing set, the Detroit rapper shouted out his “Roman’s Revenge” collaborator by asking concertgoers to weigh in on their dating prospects.
“So wait, one more time. Let me make sure so I can actually make this official,” he said, before asking, “How many people in Boston want me to date Nicki Minaj?”
The crowd responded with roaring applause. “Well, god dammit, me too,” added Em. “Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”
Nicki caught wind of Em’s comments, and suggested they link up on her upcoming album Queen, due Aug. 15. “LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The fact that he’s silly & a goof just like me😩. Love him so much,” she said. “Em we need you on the #Queen album. That’s where our 1st date will be; at the studio while I gaze into ur beautiful eyes as u write ur verse.”
